Angelo's on W. 57th

Accidently found this place, it was close to our hotel. I loved the pizza! We had salad, pizza and a cold beer. What a great meal, it really hit the spot after a long day of traveling (with a toddler) from California. Since we were so hungry and exhausted that night anything good would have been great so I told my husband "lets try it again before we leave to make sure". We went back a couple nights later, had spaghetti more salads and pizza., sure enough, it was excellent. Although 6.00 for a Coors light on tap is too much... I know, I know, its Manhattan. I will go back next time I am there.

  1. Second this. Angelo's is one of the more consistent whole-pie chains in Midtown. Even though it and Patsy's have essentially the same menu, I prefer Angelo's.

        Not fourth. Not bad, but nothing special. I certainly wouldn't make it a destination, and I've only gone to the East Side branch once, and I work down the block. It is better than the licensed-name (I believe) Patsy's chain, though.

        I see from their website that the one on Broadway and 53rd, I think (it's next to where David Letterman is taped), is the same chain. I've enjoyed the pizza at the West 57th location. How's the pizza at the Broadway place? I've only walked by but my vague recollection was that the interior looked less inviting. Is there any reason to pick this address over West 57th, all else equal?

          There are actually three locations: West 57th, East 55th (at 2nd Ave), and Broadway at 53rd (under the Late Show marquee). I've only ever been to the Broadway place - I work a block away - and I love it, but can't speak to its merits relative to the other locations. Easily the best whole-pie place I've tried in Midtown, not to damn it with faint praise.

            The other 2 locations are waaaaay better than the one on B'way next to the Letterman theater. It's hard to believe that they are related although I know they are - although I'm willing to admit I could have been there on an off day. Never had an off day at either of the other two though. Love their mixed greens and beet salad with the extra side of grilled chicken. Great lunch or light dinner.
